Victor Tsao led a group of investors purchased Baldy Mountain out of reviership in 2016 and have been working hard to drive growth and awareness for the resort as well as bring in strategic initiatives such as this.
Baldy Mountain Resort is a much loved ski resort located in the Okanagan, BC, Canda and has historically hosted many races and has an outstanding variety of terrain for beginners to advanvced skiers and boarders. The base level of over one mile above sea level makes it the highest base elevations for a ski resort in Canada, which also means Baldy is able to offer some of the most amazing snow conditions in North America.
Victor Tsao said “By hosting the Chinese Ski Team we will be opening the door to some great marketing and relationship potential in China.” China is a growth market for international visitors, especially into western Canada. “We hope that seeing international athletes training on the mountain will also be a great influence on the younger generation skiing here and will lead to some local Olympions in the near future”.
